SUPPORT THIS INDEPENDENT JOURNALISM
The article you’re about to read is from our reporters doing their important work — investigating, researching, and writing their stories. We want to provide informative and inspirational stories that connect you to the people, issues and opportunities within our community. Journalism requires lots of resources. Today, our business model has been interrupted by the pandemic; the vast majority of our advertisers’ businesses have been impacted. That’s why the SC Times is now turning to you for financial support. Learn more about our new Insider’s program here. Thank you.
According to CalRecycle, the new food scrap mandate that requires businesses that produce more than eight cubic yards of organic waste per week will need to arrange for organic waste recycling services, which went into effect Friday, April 1.
Additional food scrap mandates are to go into effect as part of California’s effort to reduce organic waste by 50 percent by 2020. For more information on the mandate and a list of future dates for organic waste provisions, visit www.calrecycle.ca.gov.
